Been AWOL.Had so many things I have been sorting out that kept me off Blogsphere. But I am back now.
Was in Lagos,Saturday 21st November 2009 where I participated in The Great Hope Walk,an annual event organised by Hope Worldwide, aimed at focusing global attention on the plights of orphans and vulnerable children (OVC).
The 2009 Great Hope walk event which was funded by MTN Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the telecoms giant,MTN Nigeria,was marked with events in the six geo-political zones across the country-Lagos,Abuja,Cross River,Kogi,and Sokoto states.
The Lagos event was a 10km walk which started from the Maryland Roundabout,near the St. Agnes Catholic Church and finished at the National Stadium, Surulere. Among the Yellow T-Shirts adorning crowd made up of people of all works of life,mostly NGOs,schools,corporate and religious organisations, were many kids,some as little as 4-years old who saw the walk as an opportunity to catch real fun. I also sighted the charismatic Chief strategist and principal consultant of Adstrat BMC,Charles O'Tudor and ex-Soundcity TV and ex-Malta Guinness Street Dance anchor,Deji Falope was there with his power bike. I saw him using the Power bike to assist in traffic control during the walk all the way to the stadium.Nigerian Bottling Company,NBC had some of their personnels at hand to distribute free bottles of chilled Eva water .Participants were later entertained with a dance drama,music and jokes at the stadium.A raffle draw was also held.
